Sausage and Black Bean Quesadillas

Now this is a shocker. We love quesadillas. Even more now that we have a griddle! Two words. Fast and Tasty. During one of our clean-out-the-fridge quesadilla nights I added cooked bratwurst to the pile of ingredients. Who knew, a German quesadilla is where it is at. So try this with any type of sausage you prefer and you won't be disappointed... They eat like a meal.

Add your favorites to this list of possible ingredients:

Black bean and onion saute- (cook sliced onion with a little oil then add a can of black beans and any seasoning you like. I like taco seasoning or any good blend of seasonings with paprika, garlic, onion, pepper, salt, etc)

Mixture of cheeses, sliced or grated, (we like cheddar and parmesan)

Tomatoes, chopped

Pico de Gallo, store bought works


Cooked and chopped sausage

Place tortilla in any pan that gives you room around the edge to flip this or a griddle. start piling layer of cheese first as glue, then beans and veggies, and sausage. I put an extra layer of cheese on top before the next tortilla to help it stay together. Cook over med heat or lower if browning too fast. When cheese starts to melt on bottom and tortilla is golden go ahead and flip it. When done and cooked through an easy way to slice it is with a pizza cutter on cutting board.

And you know the drill, use salsa, sour cream, avocado, etc. as sides if you like.
